An 81 year old couple, who had been married for almost 60 years, die in a car crash. They had been in good health for the last 10 years, much thanks to exercise and the healthy food that the wife had picked out. As they reach the gates of heaven, Jesus stands ready to receive them.
He accompanies them to their new house. Itâ€™s a grand house with a huge kitchen, bedroom and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi. The couple looks around with amazement. The old man asks Jesus how much it costs to live there.
â€œItâ€™s free of course,â€ Jesus replies, â€œthis is heaven after all.â€
They then go to inspect the golf course which is situated just by the house. They now have the privilege of playing there every day of the week. The course seemed excellent, and was possibly the best golf course the old man had ever seen. He asks Jesus:
â€œHow much is the green fee?â€
â€œItâ€™s free of course, this is heaven after all.â€
They continue to the club house. There, the Easter Bunny has prepared a gigantic lunch buffet.
â€œHow much does it cost to eat here?â€
â€œMy friend, youâ€™re in heaven now, everything is free,â€ Jesus replies.
â€œBut there doesnâ€™t seem to be any low calorie foods,â€ the man says as he looks at the full plates.
â€œThatâ€™s whatâ€™s so great! You can eat as much as you want to, and never gain weight or get ill. This is heaven after all.â€
The old man suddenly gets furious, throws his hat on the ground, and stamps on it angrily.
His wife tries to calm him down, and asks him whatâ€™s wrong:
â€œIf it werenâ€™t for your damned healthy food, we could have been here for 10 years already!â€
